The Avenue Tennis Club in Burnham-On-Sea invites spectators to its club this week when it hosts the 3rd year of the British Lawn Tennis Association. Burnham Tennis Open.
Some of the best players in the county and the country of all ages, men, women and children, will compete for the trophies in their respective tournaments from Monday August 8.
The club will have its open bar serving hot and cold drinks as well as food throughout the day. Coach Vinny Duddy said: “It’s a great day for friends and family to come and enjoy some good tennis and coffee and cake.”
Meanwhile, he also said he was very happy with the way the new 2-hour format of ‘Vinny’s Minis’ is going at the club, which sees two sessions run from 6-7 for the under-8s and 7-8 for the over 8s with some of the older kids doing the 2 hours on a Friday night.
He also thanked Kay Haines, Sam Goodhew and Hans Hermann Beniscke for running and managing the bar and social side of Friday nights which proved a huge hit with families and fellow club members.
He said the sessions are well attended with many children attending both sessions.
He was keen to point out that while the junior sessions are going on it is possible to play social doubles tennis or if you want to improve your tennis skills there is a fantastic adult tennis lesson available with head coach Tim Seymour from 6 to 7.
